Denison joins Ohio Business Competes
Denison joined Ohio Business Competes, a nonpartisan coalition of businesses, universities, and nonprofits advocating that the state of Ohio add basic nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people in housing, employment, and public accommodations.
THE ECONOMIC CASE FOR LGBT NON-DISCRIMINATION
Ohio can avoid major competitive risks – and win investment, business, and talent – by sending a clear and consistent signal that the LGBT community is fully welcome here. This message matters to large and small businesses, to tourism and travel bookers, and to talented workers.
Treating LGBT people fairly and welcoming them warmly costs nothing and would change our state’s brand for the better, while creating quantifiable, long-term economic benefits.
